Most commonly seen in period properties, traditional wardrobes have panelled doors with mouldings on them. They usually have fluted panels either side and a plain cornice on top, however these are design preferences.
Shaker wardrobes are plain panelled doors that can be dressed up with fluted panels and cornicing or the finishing details can be left plain. Still a traditional design but with a modern twist.
Height of wardrobe
It can go ceiling height to maximize storage space.
If you have coving, we recommend to go just below to not intrude or it will look messy.
If you have a picture rail, we recommend to go just below unless you want the picture rail removed where the bespoke wardrobe is being fitted, then it could go to ceiling.
Depth of wardrobe
As standard should be 600mm deep externally to give an internal depth of 544mm which is enough to hanging clothes comfortably. Anything shallower should consider pull out hanging rails but this will not fit as much storage.
A wardrobe can have various configurations including hanging rails, shelves and drawers, pull out shelves for shoes, tie drawers. An internal configuration for a bespoke wardrobe is very personal to your needs and should be thought through very carefully.
Design of the bespoke wardrobe
Choose what design you like the most from the 3 designs above; Either traditional, shaker or contemporary wardrobes.
Details of the wardrobe
If you are having a traditional or shaker wardrobe then fluted panels could be considered. A cornice could also be considered being either plain or moulded and the plinth could be moulded too. A contemporary wardrobe should have all plain features.
